Research Scale Pressure Reactors

The need for “tool-less” leak tight seals Demanding chemistries often require more extreme process conditions which need pressure reactors. A key to doing chemistry under pressure is to use reactors that are simple to use while at the same time being safe – covering single and parallel operation and a over a range of volumes. At the small volume end, HEL has developed “Research Scale” Pressure Reactors where a range of volumes can fit a single heat plate: Mini: Common head plate to fit 16,25 and 50 ml – magnetically stirred Midi: Common head plate to fit 75, 150, 300 and 500 ml – magnetically or overhead stirred. These reactors,… Continue Reading

Hybrid Reactor Solutions For Bioreactors And Catalytic Synthetic Chemistry

HEL ChemSCAN For Catalyst, Bio & Chemical Applications HEL offer reactors used for  “green” fuels (bio-diesel, bio-ethanol etc.), as well as bioreactors for cell and bacterial applications. These bio applications have a lot in common with high-pressure solutions for synthetic chemical screening and hydrogenation processes. The switch to 2nd and 3rd  generation bio-fuels (using biomass sources such as food-waste, stalks from crop, etc.) requires more extreme temperatures and pressures, not unlike heterogeneous catalytic processes. HEL’s unique position as both a bio and synthetic chemistry supplier is allowing the growing number of cross-over applications to be readily satisfied. Download our full brochure at
